Jonathan St. John, the Marquess of Sutherland is letting life pass him by. Wounded during the Battle of Waterloo eight years ago, he relies heavily on a cane- he's a drunk- suffers from horrific nightmares, and he's a notorious rake. Feeling he has nothing to offer a woman, he's sworn off marriage for good.
Lady Kathryn has decided to dedicate her life to her art. After years of abuse from her uncle, she's determined to never put herself under any man's hands again. After graduating from the London Art Institute, she travels to Bath to visit her mother, the Dowager Duchess of Sanderford, before starting her first commission.
Jonathan meets the portraitist, Lady Kathryn, and is immediately dazzled by her. After seeing her work, he asks her to paint him. Even though he knows he's not good enough for her, Jonathan longs to claim Lady Kathryn as his own. Can he win her Heart? Can Lady Kathryn overcome her fears and learn to trust Jonathan?

What a romantic story! I'm in love with Jonathan. He had to overcome quite a few obstacles in his life before he felt worthy to win Kathryn's heart. Kathryn had to learn to trust a man before she could open her heart to Jonathan. This author spins an excellent tale, and I plan to read more by this promising talented writer.
Ms. Vaught took what could have been a true tragedy and turned it around by love. Thanks for the great love story! - Kathy Brown
Flame level: Cold ashes This book was incredibly BORING. Woke up, went to bed, woke up the next morning, something inconsequential happened that day, went to bed, etc. I think you get the point. Save your time. Move on to the next title.
